Good evening to one and all. Got a prob with the S4. When i switch on ignition the low coolant and fan fail tell tale do not light and test theirselves. Had the binnacle off. Bulbs are fitted and have been tested to see if working and they are. Any thoughts? :)

Caught between a rock and a hard place in a catch 22 situation, So its 6 of one and half a dozen of the other. Your damned if you do, but your damned if you don't so shut your cock!!!!!!!!!!!

Firstly - well done for getting the binnacle off. :)

Secondly - I don't ever recall these two lights coming on in my car at start up. :)

Oh no - Is this a new problem :)

Mmmmmm - I'll have to go and read the book.

Okay - Quick read of the Bible (Service Manual) states the following.

Fan fail tell tale and tell tale check module was deleted with the inclusion of the revised wiring harness (This being Dec 93 onwards).

The engine coolant tell tale does not self test at start up. On the revised harness cars the level sensor is located in the plastic header tank.

Problem solved. :)

That'll be 17.50 + vat + after 22:00hrs callout fee

Thanks Simon. Had a read through the service manual and never picked up on that :) Still, at least I know how to get the binnacle off now :) What a poxy job that was. Not too bad coming off, but what a bugger to get back in situ :(
